Protest Against Darbar Attacks
THE Sunni Ittehad Council will hold National Peace Conference and sit-in at every cost to condemn the gory incident of Data Darbar and the Punjab government should avoid obstructing the religious activists, said Sunni Ittehad Council chairman, MNA Sahibzada Fazal Karim on Saturday.
Addressing a press conference after chairing the meeting of the council, Sahibzada Fazal Karim, who was flanked by other leaders of the council, expressed dissatisfaction over the committee formed to probe the Data attacks, saying the Punjab government was not serious in resolving the issue.
He stated that the council had extended all-out support to the PML-N in the movement for the restoration of judiciary but the polity party had left them high and dry.
He went on to say that the PML-N had not fulfilled the 23 demands put forward by the Council before the Chehlum of Data Darbar martyrs. What the government had done was merely form a committee, with Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khan Khosa in the chair, which had met only twice so far, he added.
Repeating the demand for the dismissal of Punjab Law Minister Rana Sana Ullah Khan, the religious leader said that the Punjab government officials had been suspended on the poor construction of embankments but, regretfully, but no action had been taken against the politicians involved in patronising militants.
He stated that the time for the restoration of peace in country had come and the political career of anyone trying to create obstacles in the way would come to end soon.
The council would hold the conference and sit-in at every cost and the government would be responsible for any untoward incident, if any obstacle was created in the way of the Sunni Ittehad. He also warned of dire consequences if the government arrested the activists.
Fazal Karim, who was elected on PML-N ticket from Faisalabad in 2008 general elections, said that a grand convention of religious leaders and a long march would be held after Ramazan ul Mubarik.
To another question about the foreign visit of President Zardari, he lashed out at the President for neglecting the flood-hit population of the country, saying Zardari should have stayed with the people of the country.
